Robbie Ray limited the Astros to two runs on Sunday, striking out eight over 4 1/3 innings.
Ray had the opportunity to play spoiler the Astros' playoff chances and he did an admirable job of it, as the Diamondbacks ultimately won 5-3. All was not lost for the boys from Houston, though, as they secured the second Wild Card slot thanks to the Angels' loss to the Rangers. But enough about them. The 24-year-old Ray struck out eight and walked one over his 4 1/3 innings of work. He finishes up the 2015 season holding a respectable 3.52 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 119/49 K/BB ratio across 127 2/3 innings. The numbers are very nice and it will be interesting to see how Ray develops entering next season. Oct 4 - 6:36 PM

Robbie Ray yielded three runs (two earned) over six innings but got a no-decision as the Diamondbacks needed 11 innings to defeat the Rockies on Tuesday.

Ray allowed two runs in the first inning, and Carlos Gonzalez tacked on a solo homer in the third. On the evening, he gave up seven hits and a pair of walks while striking out three. In 22 starts this year, the lefty has a 3.50 ERA, a 1.31 WHIP, and a 111/48 K/BB ratio over 123 1/3 innings. Ray will make his final start of the season at home against the Astros.
Sep 30 - 1:30 AM

Robbie Ray tossed six shutout innings versus the Dodgers on Tuesday to pick up the win.

Ray scattered three hits (all singles) and a pair of walks while striking out seven in the effort. It's only the 10th time in 21 starts he's been able to finish the sixth inning. The lefty has a 3.53 ERA with a 1.31 WHIP and a 108/46 K/BB ratio over 117 1/3 innings. Ray will wrap up a road trip against the Padres next.
Sep 23 - 1:10 AM

Robbie Ray allowed four runs on six hits in 4 2/3 innings in Wednesday's loss to the Padres.

He walked three, more of the same. Ray's control is wavering on him at the end of the long season. He had issued 29 free passes across 51 2/3 innings in his last 10 outings, though to be fair he had 1.72 ERA over his last three. Ray falls to 4-12 with a 3.72 ERA.
Sep 17 - 12:34 AM

Robbie Ray worked five scoreless innings in the Diamondbacks' rout of the Dodgers on Friday.

It would have been nice to see Ray work a little deeper after being handed such a big early lead, but it took him 95 pitches to get through five. He ended up allowing two hits, walking three and striking out two. He's now 4-11 with a 3.54 ERA.
Sep 12 - 1:29 AM

Robbie Ray allowed one run in 5 2/3 innings, but took a no-decision in Monday's loss to the Rockies.

The only run came around on a Jose Reyes ground out in the third inning. On the evening, Ray scattered five hits and three walks while striking out eight. The lefty now carries a 3.72 ERA with a 1.32 WHIP and an 87/34 K/BB ratio over 96 2/3 innings. He'll look to earn his first win since July 7 when he faces the Cubs at Wrigley Field in his next start.
Sep 1 - 12:20 AM

Robbie Ray's next start will be pushed back to Monday.

Ray was supposed to pitch Sunday against the Athletics but will get an extra day of rest after laboring through his last outing (3 IP, 5 H, 6 ER Tuesday against St. Louis). The left-hander is a dismal 0-6 since the All-Star break with a 5.93 ERA. The Diamondbacks are expected to call up a spot starter from Triple-A to pitch Sunday's series finale.
Aug 29 - 5:33 PM

Robbie Ray was knocked around by the Cardinals on Tuesday, allowing six runs over three innings in a loss.

Ray's command failed him in the outing, as the southpaw walked five and gave up another five hits before exiting. He's now lost six straight decisions, although most haven't been as lopsided as Tuesday's contest. Even so, Ray is now 3-10 with a 3.86 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 79/32 K/BB ratio through 16 starts. An interleague date with the Athletics is on tap for Sunday.
Aug 26 - 1:31 AM

Robbie Ray gave up three runs in six innings, taking the loss on Wednesday versus the Pirates.

All three runs scored in the second inning, when the Pirates used a hit batsman, two singles, and a double to take an early lead. Ray allowed seven hits and a pair of walks while striking out five on the evening. He's averaging fewer than six innings per start in 15 starts on the year, but he's been solid otherwise, sporting a 3.38 ERA with a 1.25 WHIP and a 76/27 K/BB ratio over 88 innings. Ray will take the hill against the Cardinals at home in his next start.
Aug 19 - 10:03 PM

Robbie Ray struggled in a losing effort against the Braves on Friday, allowing three runs on six hits in just 4 1/3 innings of work.

The young southpaw struggled badly with his command in this one, issuing four free passes and failing to record a strikeout. Even with the rough outing though, Ray still boasts a 3.29 ERA and 1.23 WHIP on the season. He'll look to get back on track on Wednesday when he takes on the Pirates in Pittsburgh.
Aug 14 - 10:40 PM

Robbie Ray tossed a quality start in Saturday's loss to the Reds, allowing three runs on five hits over six innings.

Ray struck out eight and issued just one walk. He served up a two-run homer to Eugenio Suarez in the fourth inning and a solo shot to Brandon Phillips in the fifth, but otherwise held the Reds at bay during his time on the mound. The 23-year-old southpaw has been money this season and holds a 3.13 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 71/21 K/BB ratio over 76 2/3 innings. Despite those strong numbers, his record sits at just 3-7. He'll rumble with the Braves in Atlanta next time he toes the rubber.
Aug 8 - 11:43 PM

Robbie Ray failed to give the Diamondbacks length in Sunday's loss to the Astros, allowing four runs on seven hits over five innings.

Ray avoided the big inning, instead allowing a slow trickle of runs, with one scoring in the second, two scoring in the fourth and a final run coming home in the fifth frame. He struck out five and walked three as he fell to 3-6 on the season. The owner of a 3.01 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and a 63/20 K/BB ratio in 71 2/3 innings, Ray will head home to face the Reds in his next start.
Aug 2 - 5:21 PM

Robbie Ray pitched well in a no-decision, halting the Mariners at two runs in seven innings in Monday's 10-inning victory.

Ray allowed six hits and two walks while striking out eight. The first run came in on Logan Morrison's RBI single in the fifth inning, and the second was courtesy Robinson Cano in the sixth on a solo homer. Ray has been terrific in 11 starts this year, boasting a 2.70 ERA with a 1.13 WHIP and a 58/17 K/BB ratio over 66 2/3 innings. He'll face off with the Astros at Minute Maid Park in his next outing.
Jul 28 - 1:52 AM

Robbie Ray coughed up five runs (four earned) across 4 2/3 innings Wednesday against the Marlins.

Ray whiffed four, issued three free passes and gave up five hits. It was a disappointing outing from the resurgent 23-year-old, who had allowed two runs or fewer in seven of his last nine starts coming in. We endorse Ray as a consistent NL-only play. Mixed leaguers may also want to take a look at Ray's upcoming two-start week; the matchup in Seattle is ideal, while the date in Houston brings risk.
Jul 23 - 1:01 AM

Robbie Ray yielded two runs in five innings and struck out eight Friday against the Giants.

It's a new career high in strikeouts for Ray. His last five starts haven't matched his first four, but he's still pitching plenty well enough to keep his rotation spot. With no walks tonight, he has a 46/12 K/BB ratio in 55 innings.
